    Dear brothers and sisters,( the organising committee)

    I would like to express my appreciation and sincere acknowledgement of what you are trying to do in the name of our great luo clanship which is spread all over south sudan and east and central Africa. It is a privilage and honour to see these clans coming together even if only on social unity rather than political unity. But, of course, social and political matters are undoudtedly interrelated.

    Of course, many people from southern sudan, especially our brothers and sisters who do not want us to come together because of fear that we will become a strong group. It should not be a point of discussion when two or three brothers and sisters unite for a common goal which will not affect the interest of other people.

    I see unity as part of human development and prosperity. We unite so that we work together and by bringing two or three brains to work together I believe that we can bring development and prosperity to our communities.You have dinka Bor, dinka Gogrial, dinka Tony and etc who call themselves dinkas and as one tribe under one umbrella. You have also bari tribe in equatoria of many groups of tribes as one of the biggest tribe in the south. Why not Luo tribe.

    Viva Luo unity.

    although I have no more information of the organization's objectives, i think it is a good idea for people with cultural similarity and same root to organize a body that will serve their common interest and bind people together in a mutual and continuing pursuit of a higher purpose no matter how much others may resist that view. for the fact that different people bring different experiences, assumptions, values, beliefs and habits. this diversity is valuable because innovation and learning are the products of differences.
    therefore, we should give ourselves a strong sense of the history of our tribe. What is good about its past as well as an idea of today and responsibility people must take in shaping the future. The primary questions are:
    Whose values, beliefs, attitudes or behaviors would have to change in order for progress to take place?
    What sacrifices would have to be made and by whom?

  • I think we are in the same page and all these wonderful words of encouragement toward our unity will find a hot place in the hearts of the audience in that meeting. I promise that I will take those comments to that meeting !.
    Together we stand, divided we fall. Our children and our children children should have a better chances in life and equall opportunities rather than trailing due the sub-division we are categorized into. We need to stand up to restore that family together again and heal the worns of that division among us which has existed for centuries til now a day. And it's our right and duty to see that unity is taking efffect in our life without seeking permission or bless from fellow human like us.
